Calla palustris, Bog arum or Water arum - Marginal Aquatic Plant
A rambling plant with heart-shaped leaves, white flowers are followed by bright red seed heads. This is one of the very few plants known to be pollinated by snails as they are attracted by the flower's scent.
This plant creeps from where it is first planted. In summer, the growing shoots can be cut off, to encourage branching, and pushed into the soil to propagate.
